Let's get one thing clear.
The LG Stylo 3 doesn't even come close to the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. It doesn't have the Note's two rear cameras, a lightning fast processor, or a water resistant And the LG phone stylus which can be stored inside the phone like the Note 8 SN won't be able to carry out software tricks like selecting text translate or creating animated messages.
But if you want to take note, jot down quick memos and doodles or just give your fingers a break while using the touchscreen.
The Stylo only cost $130.
That's a whopping $800 less than the Note 8's cheapest price.
Seriously, that's like 7 style of three's fo the price of a single Note 8 and it does come with a few handy tools.
You can take notes on the lock screen, scan images, and capture a portion of the screen.
Its 3.2 [UNKNOWN] battery also lasts A really long time and scored well during our battery drain test for a continuous video playback.
The phone also has a 13 megapixel camera, a Snapdragon 435 processor and expandable memory.
Again, if you're lusting for the Note 8 and all its cool features, be ready to cough off the money.
And true, you can always buy a separate Stylus for any phone.
But if you want a phone for cheap that offers the convenience of storing a stylus inside, the LG Stylo 3 is a decent alternative.
